Pedestal and tower fan reviews

Last updated: 17 December 2018

Keep things cool with an energy-efficient pedestal or tower fan. We rate airflow from popular brands like Dyson, Sunbeam and Kmart to see how well they cool you down, and we measure noise at high and low speeds.

We independently lab test pedestal and tower fans to help you decide which one will cool you down best during summer. 

Our tests cover pedestal and tower fans, from $15 supermarket models to $800 models with air purifiers. Our scores focus only on airflow; but we also list useful features so you can see:

  • which fans have the best airflow
  • which have useful features like timers and remote controls
  • how much the fans oscillate
  • how noisy they are at low and high speeds

We calculate the airflow for circular pedestal fans using a different formula to the tower fans which are generally a rectangular shape. You can choose the type you prefer using our filters.
